Our Services24-hour Patrol and Emergency Response
Police officers patrol campus on a 24-hour basis and are always available to respond to emergencies.
24-hour Communications Center
The communications center is located adjacent to the West Parking Facility and is staffed by trained communications officers for around-the-clock assistance.
Night-time Escort Service
Escorts are provided for students after dark to any destination on campus and the Marta station. Escorts are provided by vehicle or on foot.
The department provides vehicle jump starts and door unlocks.
28 emergency phones (illuminated by a blue light) are strategically located around campus. The phones are directly connected to the emergency line at the public safety department. Calls are received by communications officers who dispatch police officers or EMS for assistance.
Parking Lot Surveillance
Cameras are located in some of the campus parking lots for added detection and deterrence.
Students who find themselves stranded off campus in a position where they do not feel safe or comfortable, and do not have money, can hire a taxi back to campus and be dropped off at the Department of Public Safety. Public safety will cover the taxi fare, but the students must repay the fare within two weeks to sustain the taxi fund for other students’ use.
Self Defense Classes
Crime prevention classes focusing on self awareness and defense are offered throughout the year.
